Abstract

Spine Surgeries: Challenging Aspects And Implications For Anaesthesia
 

Anaesthesia for spine surgery presents diverse challenges for the anaesthesiologist. The various indications for spine surgery include trauma induced spinal instability, tumour or vascular malformation, congenital structural deformity, infections and discogenic or facetogenic pain. The pre-anaesthetic evaluation should be meticulous and is very important to know the degree of neurological damage and to anticipate the intraoperative concerns related to the approach, positioning and monitoring of neurologic functions of spinal cord.
